Why would you deny me, my Christian name, my God?
Image of what god? The one that create evil?

I can't deny you a belief in a specific image of a god. Only you can make that claim.

It's quite fascinating to watch Catholics and Protestants squabbling over who is the favorite of a Jewish god.

It seems that the theology of pope Peter got the shaft as Siricius became known as the first pope ... "father" of the other bishops.

A History of Religious Ideas, by Mircea Eliade.

At the first ecumenical councils, only certain representatives of the “Pope” participated. That title was adopted by Siricius (384—99), who thus proclaimed himself the “father” and not the “brother” of the other bishops

The salvation of Christians, those inside or outside the "True Church", whatever this may be, depends on the all-good, allwise and all-powerful God, who acts in the Church but also through other "ways." God's saving grace is also channelled outside the Church. It cannot be assumed that salvation is denied them.

Abundantly true.
Please cite evidence to the contrary.
Heretics abstain from the Eucharist and from prayer, because they do not confess that the Eucharist is the Flesh of our Savior Jesus Christ." St. Ignatius of Antioch ("Epistle to the Smyrneans," c. 105 A.D.)

"The bread and the wine of the Eucharist before the holy invocation of the adorable Trinity were simple bread and wine, but the invocation having been made, the bread becomes the Body of Christ and the wine the Blood of Christ." St. Cyril of Jerusalem ("Catechetical Lectures," 350 A.D.)

Dan, see how long it took you change from just believing because Jesus said so and then to it needing a invocation? There is a reason many don't believe what you say, it changes.

17After taking the cup, he gave thanks and said,“Take this and divide it among you. 18For I tell you I will not drink again from the fruit of the vine until the kingdom of God comes.”

19And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying,“This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.”

20In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying,“This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.

Yet the pope is known as "the bishop of Rome.

Just a change of a word here and there creates a whole new spin-off in another direction.

And people with their brains in binders, and blinder on, follow the twists and turns.

If this supposed god is above human ability to know, why are you making statements on the supposed god's behalf.

Why are you so arrogant as to presume that you know?

"THE hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church has published a teaching document instructing the faithful that some parts of the Bible are not actually true...

... The Catholic bishops of England, Wales and Scotland are warning their five million worshippers, as well as any others drawn to the study of scripture, that they should not expect “total accuracy” from the Bible...

... The document shows how far the Catholic Church has come since the 17th century, when Galileo was condemned as a heretic for flouting a near-universal belief in the divine inspiration of the Bible by advocating the Copernican view of the solar system. Only a century ago, Pope Pius X condemned Modernist Catholic scholars who adapted historical-critical methods of analysing ancient literature to the Bible ...

... They say the Church must offer the gospel in ways “appropriate to changing times, intelligible and attractive to our contemporaries”.

... Such an approach is dangerous, for example, when people of one nation or group see in the Bible a mandate for their own superiority, and even consider themselves permitted by the Bible to use violence against others.”

Who is a Jew?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lists of Jews

Denominations[show]
Orthodox • Conservative
Reform • Reconstructionist
Liberal • Karaite • Humanistic
Renewal • Alternative

"Who is a Jew?" is a basic question about Jewish identity. The question has gained particular prominence in connection with several high-profile legal cases in Israel since the founding of the Jewish state in 1948.

The definition of who is a Jew varies according to whether it is being considered by Jews for self-identification or by non-Jews for their own particular purposes. As Jewish identity can include characteristics of an ethnicity and of a religion, the definition of who is a Jew has varied, depending on whether a religious, sociological, or ethnic aspect was being considered. This article is concerned with Jewish self-identification issues.

According to the simplest definition used by Jews for self-identification, a person is a Jew by birth, or becomes one through religious conversion. However, there are differences of opinion among the various branches of Judaism in the application of this definition, including:

Mixed parentage: i.e. whether a person of certain mixed Jewish and non-Jewish parentage should be considered Jewish.
Conversion: i.e. what process of religious conversion should be considered valid.
Life circumstances issues: i.e. whether a person's actions (such as conversion to a different religion) or circumstances in his or her life (such as being unaware of Jewish parentage) should affect his or her Jewish status.

It doesn't matter what you think about the Eucharist. It only matters what was taught. And what you 'think' was not taught. Plain and simple.
You're a sweet ol lady. That's why God still loves you. So don't take advantage of His infinite love and mercy by attempting to undo what Jesus Christ taught.
